Description: Mammoth is an impressive, gothic-like cave that could easily be described...
Mammoth is an impressive, gothic-like cave that could easily be described as the perfect home for a caveman. Tours are self-guided with an audio headset and begin via an elevated boardwalk through towering Karri forest. As you journey through the spectacular formations lookout for the carefully lit animal bones and fossils and listen to the stories about extinct animals. Wildflowers are abundant around the precinct from September to November. Located 22km south of Margaret River.

A great experience, this cave has the least amount of stairs for the unfit. A great place to see. There is a lovely café and it is very quiet and serene.

Self guided tour was good. These caves are not the most spectacular but well worth a visit. There are a number of steps particularly on the way out but otherwise easy to get around. Well worth a visit and break from the wineries.

The self paced, self guided tour with the ear piece is a great way to experience the cave. Good to see other caves also, but really enjoyed this one. Friendly local staff were good too.

I'm not a cave enthusiast and have visited a few on our travels, was a little underwhelmed by this one. Yes, it's a mammoth hole under the ground with tites and mites, couldn't find the jaw bone!! Audio commentary was informative. Enjoyed the cooler temp under ground as it was a hot day and took the long walk back to... More

Nice segway from the non-stop winery, cheese, and chocolate sampling. Enjoyed the fragile beauty of "straws" and guide Crusty manages to entertain and educate at the same time.

I liked it because it was like a little Nat geo adventure for a city dweller like me. It was very peaceful in there, and had a museum feel to it. My husband on the other hand felt it was a little eerie (I guess the cold added to the atmosphere) but all in all I think it was quite... More

Really enjoyable tour and a very informative audio tour. The tours are on audio players, so the whole visit to the cave is beautifully quiet. There are some explanations from geologists and geology sub-specialists. Do hang on to the rails though, as some parts of the cave are relatively dark and some steps are slightly dipped. A long walk back... More

Had to decide between lake cave and mammoth. In the end chose mammoth as our timing didn't fit in well with guided tours of lake cave, so self guided tour of mammoth suited us. Spectacular cave, good commentary on audio device, easy to get around although there are narrow steep steps so little kids would need to take care. We... More

Didn't realise there were caves in the area, although the name Caves Road should have been a hint. Very much worth a visit
